Ep.51 Is Corruption An Educationally Transmitted Disease?

At the 2018 International Anti-corruption conference (IACC) in Denmark, Dr. Ande Ivorgba was famously quoted saying ‘Corruption is an educationally transmitted disease’. In this podcast, Dr. Ivorgba argues that corruption is learned behaviour and that the current education model in schools across Nigeria is contributing to the value deficit in Nigeria. He explains that if the education system’s focus is solely on the cognitive domain of learning, then important lessons like ethics and character building are completely overlooked.

Dr. Ivorgba and Onyi Ough also discuss the importance of value-based education in tackling corruption and recommendations for stakeholders in the education sector to strengthen value-based education across schools in the nation.
